Make: Day recap – kids stuff

Make: Day recap – kids stuff

Make: Day was held at the Science Museum of Minnesota, a place which prides itself in allowing kids to be able to touch and interact with pretty much anything in the building. Of course, when it comes to kids and hands-on learning, MAKE Magazine and Make: television feel exactly the same way, so we think we were able to satisfy the inner tinkerer of hundreds of kids.

A lot of the Makers at Make: Day had great activities and projects for kids, including Studio Bricolage and their Paint Pendulum, and the Twin Cities Robotics Group, who built the robot entertaining the girl in the video above.


This young rocker showed Tim Kaiser the ropes.


We tried not to disappoint at the Make: television table too. Here’s a young Maker playing with John Park’s Robo-Finger. And kids were rocking out all day long on our Cigar Box Guitar.


More pictures from Make: Day can be found on our Flickr pool.
